Fiber Fest Day 2 & Finished Sexy Kittens. . .

Lastnight while waiting to purchase the seventh and last Harry Potter book I finished my friend Melissa's socks. I think they turned out great and believe she'll love them! I can't wait to give them to her! I even grafted the toes while standing in line, lmfao! I stayed up until 7am reading and I just finished reading it tonight. All I can do right now is think. The ending makes you think. . . . .and ponder about it all. . . .it is a conclusion and it gives you comfort, but it still makes you think.

OKAY, now to the fiber fest. I helped out Toni for the second time and I simply adore this woman! She kept her promise and brought me bare yarn for my new sock yarn busniess I'm putting in gear. She brought me a 100% Merino superwash, a 100% Merino non superwash and a merino, bamboo, and nylon blend! I can't wait to dye them up and see what everyone thinks! Below is the cone of the Bamboo blend!

Below is Malabrigo Lace in Blue Surf. This stuff is soooooo soft it should be illegal or locked up! I bought 3 skeins, $10 each and 470 yards. This will become my Invisibility Cloak from Charmed Knits! I wanted the green, but they didn't have a 3rd skein. =/ Oh well. I think the blue will do brilliantly!

Toni also brought me 2 skeins of Mountain Colors Twizzle for me to try because I REALLY want to try it! The colourway is "TaMarack." And I also purchased yet another skein of STR. It was the last one of this colourway, "Romancing the Stone" and it was calling to me. . . . .oh shut up! lmfao. My mom went with me today and had a blast!! I was surprised actually. Okay, enough chatter. I have a book to finish & socks to start!

And also, Martha Holiday, who was also helping Toni, taught me how to do short rows!!!! Also, check out her "Hold My Socks" DPN sock holders!!! They're awesome!!
